Tottenham defender, Jan Vertonghen is quite confident they can close the gap to PL leaders, Manchester City.
Spurs are currently seventh on the standings, and are 21 points behind City, after their 4-1 loss to Guardiola’s side.
Even though Tottenham are closer in points to Crystal Palace, Vertonghen is confident of closing the gap to City.
“We could and should have been closer and I think we can reduce the gap definitely,” the 30-year-old defender told ESPN.
“There’s a bit of frustration. Not just for us – for other teams as well probably. The gap reflects the strength of City but I don’t think it reflects our strength.
“I still think we’re stronger than last year. We just have to get that run going, hopefully around Christmas.
“Obviously we lost 4-1 and City played very well but we can – and will – do a lot better in the next couple of games. We’ve got a lot of guys coming back from injuries – there’s still a couple out of course – but I think we’re looking very good at the moment.
“A bit of luck is missing this year, but only Kyle Walker left us from that team [last season] and I see no reason we can’t do the same again.”
